MOMO: "EVERYBODY HAD A CHANCE EXCEPT ME"

31 May 2006
Momo knows that he doesn't count for coach Caparr??s. For this reason he believes his future lies outside of Deportivo. For the moment, the Canarian player is waiting for news. Momo asks for patience and is hoping for a quick solution to his situation. This is what he said in an interview to <i>La Voz de Galicia</i>.

Q: You’ve had a bad season with Depor.
A: Yes, I haven’t had a good year. I haven’t lost hope, and my ambitions are still intact. I want to recover my confidence.

Q: Do you think you didn’t get a chance to show your true worth in La Coru?±a?
A: Yes. Everybody had their chance, but I didn’t get to show my capabilities. I arrived the first year with hope and people treated me really well, but they weren't able to see me play a complete game, so they couldn’t judge me.

Q: Do you think your teammates enjoyed more confidence from the coach?
A: This isn't a matter of my teammates, because they aren't responsible for this. I just think that the club didn't judge us in the same way.

Q: Do you regret signing a contract with Deportivo?
A: For me it's the greatest thing in Spain. It's just that it hasn't been what I was expecting. In fact, I would love to complete the three years stipulated in my contract. But if the club isn't happy with me, they just have to tell me and it won't be a problem.

Q: Have you spoken with Caparr??s?
A: No, although the normal thing would be for me to go on a loan spell. The coach has another perspective, and it’s not logical now for me to be in the first squad. I will have to search for a new future.

Q: Are you upset?
A: Just because I want to know where I will be next season doesn’t mean I’m mad. I want to play, enjoy and earn people’s trust.

Q: Any conversations with the club?
A: No, but it would be the normal thing to do. It's my life and future. I would like to talk about this issue. But here things are decided at the eleventh hour. In previous years, things were decided the proper way. It would be better if we could discuss these things face to face.

Q: Have you already set a deadline to make a decision?
A: Look, I know that this won't be resolved now, but I would like to know as soon as possible – let's say in two weeks. I don't want to wait until the eleventh hour, because then I will start off late with my new team.

Q: Do you think you have the liberty to choose your next club?
A: I would like to have that choice, but these things aren't important to Deportivo.
